Bea Harper has a long history of working in the fashion industry. At 13 years old, she was selected to work as an apprentice under Jack Cigelman, a master tailor. It was with the tutelage of this skilled man that Bea was able to hone the skills necessary to fulfill her childhood dream of working in the fashion industry.
In 1979, Bea moved to Texas to work as the master tailor and tailoring supervisor for the newly opened Polo Ralph Lauren store in Highland Park Village. Here, she found a home to build a clientele that truly appreciated her craft. Embracing the demanding, yet appreciative, audience, Bea began making a name for herself among Dallas’ elite.
Starting in 1984, Bea began producing her own designer fashions, including a line of women’s sleepwear, a collection of Western-inspired women’s apparel, waitstaff uniforms, tabletop accessories, and a line of optical accessories. Her products have been sold through catalogs for Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom’s, Horchow, Talbots, Speigel, just to name a few.
Her early success led her to open The Fitting Room, a place where she is able to showcase her style and brand. Everything by Bea Harper is a quality you can take pride in.
